Bags of Glamour


Bags of Glamour was started in 2005 by Sarah Delves.  After watching an antiques programme which featured a collection of stunning handbags, Sarah decided to research the origin of lucite handbags which were mainly manufactured in the United States of America.
Lucite bags were generally produced from the 1940’s to the end of the 1950’s.  They featured many stunning designs and were known as ‘Sculpture to Wear’.  Many famous people carried these amazing bags including Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Munro. There are many well known makers including Charles Kahn, Dorset Rex, Rialto and Wilardy.  There is a growing collectors market within the United Kingdom now for Lucite Handbags and Bags of Glamour are proud to be one of the UK’s largest dealers in these fabulous handbags.
Bags of Glamour also offers a stunning range of compacts, carryall’s and minaudiere’s.  These vintage desirables are available from many of the leading makers including Stratton, Coty, Kigu, 5th Avenue and Volupte.
